Perth Airport - The Community and Industry. Is it prepared?

  1. 1. Perth Airport – Community and Industry - is it prepared ?<br />Engineers Australia May 24, 2011 <br />Photo: Merv Prime<br />
  2. 2. Challenges<br />High turnover of airlines<br />Peak demand<br />Effectively a single runway operation<br />Challenges aloft<br />Wide variety of aircraft sizes<br />Length of many destination runways<br />Unprecedented growth<br />Noise<br />

  10. 10. By the early 70s….<br />MMA had five 55-seat F-28 Fellowships jets to cater for the “boom.”<br />Supported by a few F-27 Friendships and the<br />Occasional DC-3 to airlift supplies during the cyclone season<br />

  18. 18. Intense competition has taken its toll…<br />Between 1960 and 2010 - 46 scheduled airlines have entered bankruptcy or merged in WA!<br />Ansett, itself a victim of competition, was made up of 78 airlines that it had absorbed<br />Recent casualties include Impulse, Ozjet, and Sky Air World, while Qantas has purchased Network to launch its FIFO ambitions<br />
  19. 19. Peak demand…<br />
  20. 20. Mid week from 5.10am to 7.30am typically there will be…<br />80 departures<br />10 arrivals <br />30 aircraft tows<br /> So let’s take a fly around the airport to see what that means…<br />

  88. 88. Will airlines go for larger aircraft in Perth?<br />
  89. 89. While there has been some significant changes….that is stabilizing<br />Network is buying 10 more 100-seat Fokker 100s<br />Skywest 2 more Fokker 100s and one more 180-seat A320<br />Jetstar is focused on the A320 for domestic ops<br />Virgin and Qantas building fleets around the 180-seat 737NG for regional ops<br />
  90. 90. Because the problem is…<br />Most regional and remote airports can’t handle larger aircraft<br />Only about 12 airports in WA are 737/A320 capable<br />Cost to upgrade 80 candidate airports would run into 10s of billions of dollars<br />Only one “FIFO only” airport -Cloud Break- can handle A320/737 equipment<br />

  93. 93. Perth Airport – Flights Growth<br />Perth Airport exceeded its 2013 movement forecast in 2010<br />

  95. 95. Australian Airport – Fleet Mix2010<br />Perth Airport’s fleet mix issues are no worse than other Australian airports<br />
  96. 96. Challenges & Questions<br />
  97. 97. Do we build a second runway for 2015, which is the earliest date?<br />Who pays the $900 million bill – the resource industry?<br />Who compensates Perth Airport for loss of revenue from lost land leases? <br />Other options – Jandakot or greenfields site?<br />
  98. 98.
  99. 99. What happens to the critical $750 million road works required for the airport’s ultimate development?<br />Should we push for partial development?<br />Or funded through toll? <br />
  100. 100.
  101. 101.
  102. 102.
  103. 103.
  104. 104.
  105. 105. Noise<br />No curfew – we can’t have one!!<br />Sydney and Adelaide have curfews - why can’t we?<br />Aircraft getting quieter <br />But more frequency of aircraft <br />Population far more sensitive<br />
  106. 106.
  107. 107.
  108. 108. But we can make a difference!<br />Ban night cargo flight transit stops<br />Ban early morning cargo take-offs -747 horse flights<br />Full length runway take-offs<br />Max power take-offs at noise sensitive times<br />Off-set by insulation for some homes<br />Landfill sand barriers to deaden noise<br />Ban building of homes close to airport<br />
  109. 109.
